  I was curious as to how WBZ-TV would handle covering the Senator Kennedy 
memorial remembrance that is scheduled to run from 7 to 9 tonight, as they 
have a Patriots pre-season football game scheduled to air starting at 8. I 
guessed the football game would have been sent to co-owned WSBK and 'BZ-TV 
would air the Kennedy memorial. Nope. WSBK is carrying the Kennedy 
remembrance, while 'BZ-TV ran "Wheel of Fortune" & "Jeopardy", which usually 
run on 'SBK from 7 to 8. Thus WBZ will air the Pats at 8. Just curious as to 
why the Patriots game has to air on 'BZ, is it because the contract says so 
or is it because of cable or dish channel position?
